Hear me out -- I do believe Donald Trump will make America great again

Why I'm A College Student Who Voted For Donald Trump
National Review

Before you start your rude comments and hate, please hear me out. There is no question that there has never been an election quite like the presidential election of 2016. Some people didn't vote at all because they didn't want to choose the lesser of two evils. However, I don’t think this is the right way to go. Voting is one of America’s best freedoms and I believe we should always exercise it. In the 2016 election, I chose to exercise my right and vote for Donald Trump. Here are 10 reasons why.

1. Free college will never work.

I’m a sophomore in college and most of the people I meet are still Bernie supporters. They love the idea of no more student loans. But let’s get real, nothing is free. You can argue that other countries have free college, but take a closer look, it isn’t actually free: taxpayers still end up absorbing the costs. I agree with Donald Trump, it’s OK for me to pay for my own college. The harder I work, the more affordable my tuition becomes.

2. The American Dream will stay alive.

The definition of the American Dream by James Truslow Adams is very important to me, “Life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement, regardless of social class or race.” There are winners and there are losers, but in any case, it is impossible for everyone to win all the time. We are migrating toward a world where everyone wins a participation ribbon and this serves to lessen the meaning of our triumphs no matter how large or small. The American Dream is achievable according to a person’s ability and achievement. Donald Trump has accomplished this himself and will keep it alive as president.

3. He's very accomplished.

Donald Trump is a business man, there is no doubt about it. He’s had his failures but from those, he got back up and continued to chase after what he wanted. The Grand Hyatt Hotel, Trump Tower, Wollman Rink, 40 Wall Street, Trump Place, The Apprentice and the Trump International Tower Chicago have all been very successful investments for Donald Trump. His list of accomplishments and successes” trumps” his list of failures.

4. Aren't you tired of politicians?

America is tired of lying, scheming and lazy politicians. It's nice to have someone in office who isn’t going to lie to us, has real plans and will actually change something in the White House for the better.

5. He's confident.

There’s no question that Donald Trump stands up for what he believes in.

6. His immigration policy just makes sense.

His own wife is a legal immigrant, he doesn’t have a problem with legal immigrants. His problem is with illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants are a nightmare for America. They take advantage of all the United States has to offer while not paying taxes. The U.S/Mexico border is an open war zone, the list could go on and on. Donald Trump has a plan and a good one to stop these problems.

7. He's self-funded.

Donald Trump didn't rely on donors to fund his campaign. He did it himself and he remained strong to the very end. He doesn't have any political favors to repay now that he's president.

8. Hillary and Bernie just weren't the right people for the job.

An overwhelming amount of Americans think Hillary is a liar. Would you want someone that you believe has knowingly lied to you countless times as the president?

Bernie is a nice guy, but America should stay as far away from anything close to socialism as possible.

9. He'll balance the Supreme Court.

The next president is going to appoint new judges and we need to remember our checks and balances. If Hillary or Bernie were to appoint the new judges, the Supreme Court would suddenly become extremely liberal and unbalanced. Donald Trump is the one for this job.

10. He'll make America great again.

We live in the land of the free and the home of brave. Let’s stick to our roots and make America great again with Donald Trump by our side.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
